Downtown Vernon eatery The Naked Pig is hosting live music by Vancouver-based musician Leah Barley Friday, Oct. 2.

“Telling her tales of love, loss, epic bike rides, and broken homes with beautiful tones and a ridiculous range that will make your hair stand on end, this is a show not to be missed,” said the show’s promoter Alexa Harwood-Jones in a press release.

A blues-folk singer/songwriter, Barley is on the road yet again, this time with the Converse Cowboys, featuring multi-instrumentalist Ross Christopher Fairbairn and violist John Kastelic.

Joining them will be special guest Marina Lagacé, who will perform her psychedelic folk music.

Saskatchewan born and Ontario raised, Barley fell in love with old time country and bluegrass once she moved to Canmore, Alta. in her early 20s.

After she bought her first banjo, she was writing and performing within two months. Now, with more than eight years of performing in cafés, pubs, living rooms, festivals and even at world famous venues like the Whiskey A Go Go and the Hotel Cafe in L.A. (with The Wayward Hearts), Barley says she  is definitely at home on stage.

Barley and the Converse Cowboys with guest Lagacé perform at The Naked Pig Friday at 8 p.m. For more information check out www.leahbarleymusic.com.
